It's Just That Way



Here we have it
It's just that way
Whispers and pieces
Of  thoughts we pray
And maybe its true
That somehow, someday
We'll learn to let go
Because its best that way

Here we have it
I hear a door close
And footsteps begin fading...
Only God knows
The rhyme and the reason
Of good-byes and hellos
But here we have it
That's the way life goes

...and here we have it
The laughter and tears
Of loving and losing
Of days turned to years
Life is a ballroom
We pass through but once
Hold me closer
My darling, let's dance

Because here we have it
The bitter and sweet
Parting is simply
The road till we meet
So here we have it
The fall and the rise
Of pleasure and passion
Of hellos and good-byes

...yes, here we have it
A little thing called life
A culmination
Of sorrow and strife
A tender ballad
Of its highs and its lows
And where it will take us
Only God knows

...so we take love's chances
A faith-leap of dust
Over and over
We love and we trust
Here we have it
Love's dance in the rain
And darling, I know
We'd do it again
